Question about Cars & Trucks
Key and release latch will not unlock the boot
Hi Billy,have you tried pushing down on the trunk to take any load off the latch while turning the key? It is possible there is something jamming the latch from the inside.

SOURCE: Trunk latch pull down
you need to replace the motor assembly. get the part of the internet, maybe rock auto. it's an easy repair just a couple of screws and a plug connector.

try spraying some lithium grease into the latch assembly... Since your latch is releasing the primary catch point and not the secondary, it means the latch itself still works... After using the grease and letting it soak for a few mins, close the trunk and pop it several times and hope it fully releases. If not, you could try putting pressure on the trunk by pulling it open as the key is turned. Don't use WD-40

you need to remove the trim cover on the inside of the trunk lid. it sounds like the solenoid is jamming. the solenoid should flick out against a lever that will release the trunk lid and then return back again within a split second. if it stays out then it is jamming, and thus holding the truncks locking mechanism open.
the solenoid may also jam shut and therefor not release the lock. if you can see this happening then replace the solenoid.
